The woes continue to begin the Matt Crenshaw era at IUPUI. They lost all three games in San Antonio this week to move to 0-5 on the season.
It began on Monday against old Summit League foe, Denver.
The Jags were never really in the game, falling by a final score of 63-47. Luckily for IUPUI, this was the end of a three-game streak of not breaking 50 points.
Although they dominated the boards, IUPUI really struggled from the field. They shot only 30.8% on the evening, making 16 of its 52 shots.
BJ Maxwell was able to continue his good start for the Jags, scoring 14. Bobby Harvey had his first double-digit scoring game of the season, dropping 13.
Take them out of the picture and IUPUI was 8-32 from the field. Not that good if you ask me.
On Tuesday, they would battle with Texas A&M Corpus Christi but fall once again by a final score of 65-59.
The Jags led in this game, and finished leading in a lot of categories but they couldn’t make shots when it mattered.
Corpus Christi was able to get its lead to ten with 3:24 remaining, wrapping up their victory.
IUPUI shot 38% from the field again, hitting only 18 of its 47 shots. Four of those came from, you guessed it, B.J. Maxwell who had 14 points on the afternoon.
Wednesday was a completely different story.
The Jags led for all 20 minutes of the first half, taking a 33-28 lead at the break.
UTSA would take the lead early in the second half, but it would be back-and-forth for the remaining 20 minutes.
Bobby Harvey would make a three-pointer for IUPUI with 6:44, wrapping up what the Jags thought was its first win of the season. From there, UTSA ended the game on a 16-3 run, winning the game via a Dhieu Deing layup with 30 seconds left, 60-57.
B.J. Maxwell was able to pick up a double double for IUPUI in the game with 13 points and 10 rebounds.
The Jags will get back to action on Tuesday against D-3 Spalding at 7:00 in Indiana Farmers Coliseum. There, they should pull off their first win of the season and gain some confidence heading into Horizon League play.
